I Want To Add An “Extend A Stay” Adapter To My Propane System.
Posted 02 November 2012 - 09:43 AM
I am thinking I want it on the right side so I can use it to also power my outside gas grill. What about going in the refrigerator access panel?

Have you not been able to find a propane company who will fill your on-board tank?

I have attached the extend a stay system to my coach (Newmar Diesel Pusher) and connected to a 30 lb bottle, however my furnace will not operate? Am I doing something wrong?

Furnaces are very touchy to the amount of gas pressure it is receiving. Do your other gas appliances work? If yes, you might check the connections from the gas bottle to the extend a stay and make sure no thread tape or "pipe dope" is blocking the opening a little which could cause a partial clog and decrease the pressure enough to cause a problem with the furnace.
Next thing is I would make sure you turn the 30 lb tank on very slowly, turning it on fast with a 5' or longer hose between it and the regulator may cause the OPD valve inside the tank to think there is a leak and shut off the flow.
Pretty much all I can think of right now, hopefully others will chime in with some more ideas.
